ST_WILFRIDS_RC_PRIMARY_SCHOOL_YORK__0123

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to support the education of children who have been eligible for free school meals or are looked after, to provide equal opportunities and to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged  pupils and their peers.

Funding received 2016-17 £40480
Funding 2017-18

£31821

At St. Wilfrid’s we use our Pupil Premium Funding to support pupils and their learning through:

  • Additional teacher/teaching assistant time to provide targeted intervention and support learning
  • Financial support to ensure pupils have equal access to educational opportunities
  • Emotional support to foster pupil wellbeing and increase self esteem
  • Encouragement to develop wider interests/skills

In 2017, KS2 results showed that the children in receipt of Pupil Premium made substantially better progress than other pupils nationally in Reading, Writing and Maths:

In addition to the strategies shown above for 2016-17, during this academic year (2017-18) we are also implementing a Lesson Study approach focusing on the impact of immediate verbal feedback on pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium as well as other identified pupils. Alongside other strategies, this will be measured through impact on progress, engagement in learning, pupil voice and feedback from ELSAs as appropriate.
